When visiting Boston, I knew I had to check out the Cheers Pub that was made popular by the TV show Cheers. I knew it was the ultimate tourist trap, so we decided not to get any food or drinks here. For all the die-hard fans out there, you know they didn’t film the show here. Nonetheless, they have 2 locations – one in Beacon Hill and another at Faneuil Hall.
Cheers Pub @ Beacon Hill
This location was formerly known as the Bull and Finch Pub, which opened in 1969. This location is most famous because the Cheers show used the exterior shots for the show. In 2002, it was renamed Cheers Beacon Hill.
The interior does have a replica bar. If you are a huge fan, I would recommend having a drink. If you are not a Cheers fan, just go to a normal bar for beer. They also have a gift shop and a few areas for some photo ops here. The interior was never used for filming.

Cheers Pub @ Faneuil Hall
In 2001, the Cheers in Faneuil Hall was created to capitalize on its popularity. It’s exterior is quite different from the first location and does have patio seating.
Since it’s in a tourist area, you know that there would be tourists here too. They also have a gift shop here too!
